I use the lump charcoal mixed with mesquite and hickory chips, sometimes i'll add mesquite chunks if I'm smoking something for a ling time, and I'll also throw some pecan on for a nice change

I use a charcoal chimney to start my fire...I can't stand the charcoal fluid taste.

Default Free Pecan Wood

With all the hurricanes we get here I have several years worth of pecan wood.

The best part is I very seldom have to cut it and it's free. I drive around after a hurricane and most people have it cut and placed on the curb for trash pickup.

I take the logs home and split them before stacking it up.
